If you think this is the worst, just you wait!

Everytime life throws something at me that I cannot handle alone, all help is withdrawn and suddenly its a test. To see how well I can manage. Sometimes I emerge from the quicksand successfully, but mostly there is just me flailing in the quagmire while onlookers can just wish they could do something.
The thing is I cannot be helped. I need to heal myself. I need to fight my own battles. I wish Ma could just be there to watch me, her very presence would energize me. Just to know that if I fell, someone would cry and rush to lift me up.

At my doorstep there stands a boy
Alone and asking to be adopted
And since with him he brings only despair
I hence name him disappointment.

He smiles at all my efforts
And laughs at all my failures
He wails when I pay him no heed
And finds his way back no matter where I leave him.


COLOR: A turquoise that isn't blue enough
SONG: Tu kaun hai (Lucky Ali)

I wish Ma was there for me too,the reality is not to adopt that which doesn't need adopting, in desperation we offer the desparate which leaves us in despair, like gravity, but love lifts you up.
Two forces consistantly in tangible tussle, I see your pain
